International (MNN) — In one of Iran’s most notorious prisons, the Lord uses two women to start a church full of prostitutes and criminals.
“Marziyeh and Maryam distributed 20,000 Bibles [in Iran]. They got caught and were thrown into Evin prison – one of the worst in Iran,” Josh* with I Found the Truth says.
“But God used them to create churches in there; churches with prostitutes and criminals. What the Lord exposed them to inside, they couldn’t get outside of the prison.”
You can hear Marziyeh and Maryam tell their stories firsthand in brand new videos released by I Found the Truth. This ministry records and shares the faith stories of former Muslims online so current Muslims can learn about Christ.
“We wanted to create a place where Muslims could come, a safe place with no judgment. If they wanted to ask any questions about Jesus, about the Bible, we would be there with trained individuals to answer questions and love on them,” Josh says.
“We have amazing stories from former Muslims all around the world; [testimonies] of how Jesus worked in their lives and brought them to a place where He revealed Himself as the truth.”
Pray Muslims searching for truth and the answers to life’s big questions will encounter Jesus through this ministry.
“[During] our work in the Middle East, we [heard] time and time again from Muslims: ‘I was looking for the truth. I was looking for the truth, and I found the truth’,” Josh says.
As you watch videos from I Found the Truth, ask God to reveal someone in your life who doesn’t know Jesus. Then, pray for courage and the opportunity to share the Gospel with that person.
